yale college and harvard college offer liberal arts education, but they are part of full-fledged universities (yale university, harvard university) which offer postgrad degrees - as such they are not included in LAC rankings.

Liberal arts colleges, are usually small, meaning they will accept a smaller pool of students. So while getting that acceptance is that much harder, it's well worth the effort you put in.

Liberal Arts colleges, unlike the top 4, are dedicated to undergraduate learning. While the top 4 are more likely to focus their resources on their graduate students, Liberal Arts colleges 'specialize' in undergraduate learning. Harvard and Yale therefore simply don't belong to this category, even though they have liberal arts programs.
